Healthy Alternative Oatmeal Pancake Recipe


Regular pancakes are usually made from white flour and are considered not having as many nutrients as those made with other grains. They are carbohydrate loaded so in some cases they can cause your blood sugar to rise rather high. Flour pancakes have no source of fiber but if you use other grains you will be able to provide your body with less carbohydrates and a great deal of fiber. You can use oatmeal as one of those alternative grains to make an Oatmeal Pancake Recipe.

The original oatmeal pancake comes from a country you would not expect it to come from. They come from Sweden and are usually served with fruit and jelly instead of syrup. Oatmeal pancakes can be served with regular syrup too and they taste very good, but you can also put applesauce on them if you do not want to use syrup.

In this recipe use regular oatmeal instead of the microwave type. Also avoid the Quick Oats in the following recipe. The only oatmeal you should use is slow cooked oatmeal and you can use organic oatmeal if you wish.

Start out this easy oatmeal pancake recipe by pour two cups of milk into a large bowl and adding one and one half of a cup of rolled oats. Set the bowl aside and let them soak for around 10 minutes. Take another large bowl and blend one half of a cup of white flour, one half of a cup of wheat flour, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, one tablespoon of baking powder, on fourth of a teaspoon of table salt, and finally one half of a teaspoon of cinnamon. Take a whisk and mix this up in the bowl being careful not to spill over the sides of the bowl.

In a small bowl you want to whisk 2 eggs until they are beaten and throw them in with the milk and oatmeal mixture that has been set aside. Also add to this mixture one fourth of a cup of melted butter. Add one teaspoon vanilla as the last ingredient. Mix that all together and add the flour mixture gradually so that everything is all incorporated and it looks like pancake batter.

Place a skillet on the stove and get it hot or use an electric griddle making sure it is hot. Add just a little bit of vegetable oil or butter and scoop out about 1 fourth cup of the batter placing it on the hot surface. Bubbles will start to form around the edge of the pancake and once there is a steady circle of bubbles you can flip your pancake over. The one side should be brown and once the other side gets that way and the inside looks nice and fluffy you can remove the pancake to a plate. You can put a pat of butter on top and syrup or just put the jam, fresh fruit, or some applesauce on top.

A homemade syrup can be made to go along with your oatmeal pancakes and that is an orange syrup. This is really easy to make and will taste divine with the pancakes. In a medium saucepan place one half cup of sugar, one fourth cup orange juice, one fourth cup butter, and one fourth cup light corn syrup. Whisk this all together and heat until it starts to boil. Remove from heat and let cool about 5 minutes and serve over the pancakes. This is not the healthiest topping in the world for an oatmeal pancake recipe but if you want to splurge just once give it a try.
